Des Moines Weighs in on March 5 Local Option Sales Tax Vote
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Des Moines leaders are planning a second attempt to raise the sales tax in March. In March of 2018, Des Moines and nine other communities had to vote as a single entity on the tax hike and it failed. The cities are now allowed to vote individually on the tax. If that were the case this past March, Windsor Heights, West Des Moines, and Des Moines would already have the tax in place.
